Nikon Photo Contest

This photo got me a Nikon Emerging Talent award in this year's international photo contest.
Contest judge Ami Vitale said this:

"I chose this image because it has warmth and intimacy. This scene, bathing in the Ganges, is one that is photographed very often and I was impressed with the photographer’s ability to capture something unique. He made an effort to get close to his subject and captured a beautiful moment in time."
